Wind, Wave and Sky Workshop in May

Classes and workshops are by Doug Rankin, a certified McGown Guild rug hooking teacher since 2002. He has taught throughout the Maritimes, Ontario and in the United States. Doug was involved in the "Eye See You" Project, a large rug hooking project which was on tour for a year in the US.

 

Highland Heart Hookery offers a wide variety of rug hooking supplies with an emphasis on new, pure wool fabrics and patterns based on the paintings of two of Canada's most famous folk artists, Maud Lewis and Joe Norris.

Maud Lewis painted the subjects around her with a joy, passion and colour that we feel as we hook the patterns based on her paintings. Highland Heart Hookery is proud to be the exclusive producer of patterns for rug hooking by this wonderful artist. Although Maud had no training in the visual arts, she had a wonderful sense of colour which can give any rug hooker a lesson in colour planning and she had depth perception unlike most folk artists. Secondly, there is so much movement in the small figures she painted. Then there is the JOY! We have felt it and have been told by others of the joy they feel when they hook a Maud Lewis pattern. Maud's tiny house and artwork are on permanent display at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia.

Joe Norris is known for his wonderful colourful sunsets and his starry nights, his love of animals and birds,  the sea and the land beside it. His paintings are very detailed and are of the fishing village where he lived, the people in it, and nature. He painted everything including window shades, rocking chairs, stools, storage chests, mantels, old linoleum and whatever came to hand. His colours are the vivid blue of a calm sea; the reds and yellows of sunsets; the oranges, reds, and rusts of fall; the wild greenish colour with whitecaps of an angry sea ; and all the other fabulous colours that nature provides which the observant painter saw.  People and nature live in harmony with each other in Joe's wonderful paintings. Highland Heart Hookery is proud to be the exclusive producer of rug hooking patterns based on the paintings of this wonderful artist.

We also carry patterns based on the paintings of artist Sheila LeBlanc Joyce as well as patterns by Anne, Shona, Doug and many others.
